The Southern Illinois University School of Medicine offers both the Medication Assisted Recovery ECHO and the Co-Occurring Disorder ECHO. This ECHO, coordinated by the Department of Psychiatry at SIU School of Medicine, aims to create a network of trained providers with DATA-2000 waivers who will improve access and care for patients with opioid addiction. The Opioid ECHO will also train clinicians who have the DATA-2000 waiver but who are not yet prescribing. Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a hub and spoke educational model that connects specialists in academic medical centers (“hubs”) to primary care clinicians in rural and underserved communities (“spokes”) via videoconferencing. The ECHO sessions involve a case-based learning approach that contains 15-minute didactic lessons and patient case presentations by clinicians at participating spoke sites.
